Announcement: 2022 ASIPS Senior Graduate Student Award Application is Now Open
I like to take this moment to thank you for joining our "Aid-Didani" happy hour in March. It was so refreshing seeing our community celebrating Nowruz and having Dr. Najafi and Dr. Tabibi as our guest speakers.
To recap the ASIPS related discussions of the meeting.
The importance of having a membership fee is emphasized. Our special speaker, Dr. Ramin (Ron) Najafi, ASIPS sponsor and Emery Pharma CEO, told us about his career journey and our guest speaker, Dr. Tabibi, Project Officer at National Cancer Institute, talked about Nowruz and read a fantastic poem related to Nowruz for our community.
I also would like to share the exciting announcement that the Senior Graduate Student Awards applications are now open, and we are accepting applications. Special thanks to the generous support of Dr. Ron and Fariedeh Najafi.
